The Boss Me70 is certainly near the top of its level when compared to other similarly priced units. It is incredibly versatile, with the ability to produce a number of well produced effects and even replace your amplifier if you were particularly desperate. L/R and headphone outputs make this a useful tool for recording, and silent switching as well as an almost non-existent lag time between changing presets makes this an asset to any beginner or semi pro.
What I like most about this unit is its ability to act as a number of stomp boxes in one housing, which is great if you just want to set up and recall simple effects combinations on stage, but also its ability to turn into a huge vault of presets which are easily saved and recalled.
There are a few drawbacks to this pedal, the most prominent for me being the slight muddiness to some of the effects and the lack of quality within the amp models. Also, the reverb effect is non-switchable (unless saved within presets) and the huge array of delays cannot be accessed when the looper is in use. However, these draw backs are not too much of a problem for most users and its incredible street price makes this a top deal that is easily worth twice as much.
I love this and i have it with me everywhere i go. But i only use the ovedrive's as a boost, and only if it's a good amp. But you can get all the sounds you wil with it. tho, im missing some divebomb stuff :)
My bassist is letting me use his, but I pretty much get the picture. The ME-70 is perfect for the gigging/songwriting musician in need of a basis for usable effects. The quality of the effects can vary, some distortions are not as crisp or dynamic as their BOSS stompbox counterparts (which weren't exactly premium grade to begin with), and some effects you would like to be separate from others, whereas they are unfortunately confined to the same pedal. It's not meant for recording, but if you need a quick overdrive, compressor/boost, modulation, delay, reverb, and wah without busting your ass in expenses, then you need this.
This product have enabled me to create nearly any tone I desire.
From Post Rock, jazz, metal, punk, indie, you name it.
It also serves well to completely eradicate your tone for noise music.
